Pumpkin Spice has overtaken the world and folks either fall on the “YAY – I can’t wait for Pumpkin Spice Season” side or the “Gross — don’t want to go there” side. I do like a good pumpkin spice item but some of them have stretched the boundaries a bit. I have posted a couple posts previously of pumpkin spice treats and you can read that post by clicking here and here.
Today I am offering up a few more pumpkin spice options that I discovered this year. Come on – it’s all for the celebration of the season.
I felt like the products that I bought this year were a tad disappointing. The Life cereal (not pictured on the plate) was pretty good. Not an overwhelming taste of pumpkin or spice but it was there and I enjoyed that taste. I think the disappointing food items were disappointing because they just did not look visually appealing. The PopTart was barely filled with filling, the Milano cookies were “meh” and the marshmallows were not very tasty at all. The pumpkin spice applesauce was okay but it is not something I would buy again. I am usually a huge Belvita fan (they are great for a snack or breakfast on the go) but this flavor did not rally much support and enthusiasm from me. I haven’t made the pancakes yet (this weekend) but I am hoping they are decent. How can you ruin pancakes, right?
I have to give a two thumbs up for the Pumpkin Spice Bath Salts and Bath Bomb that I found. Both were lightly scented and not overwhelmingly pumpkiny but more spicey. I kind of liked that. I am a huge bath lover and sometimes it is fun to branch out from the lavender and other florals that I like to use. The bath bomb made the water very orange and tub clean up post bath was a necessity but every once in awhile this one would be okay.
So there you have it. My very unofficial and not very great reviews of my latest pumpkin spice acquisitions. So tell me – are you Team Pumpkin Spice or not. All comments on the blog mean a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a cause this month -Shadowbrook Farm. Click here to read all about it.
